Extremely student friendly, it is organized around three simple concepts: Section 1 covers the fundamentals of nutrition, Section 2 explains nutrition over the life cycle; and Section 3 addresses medical nutrition therapy. Maximize your course success with the numerous hands-on activities throughout the text and the MindTap digital learning solution, which includes an interactive eBook with highlighting and note-taking functions; self-quizzes; client scenarios; flashcards; interactive Case in Point and Rate this Plate exercises; NCLEX-style quizzing; and a Diet & Wellness app.
